Comment on this recipe

Ingredients

8 medium Johnathan apples (or other apples), peeled and sliced
1/4 cup sugar, plus extra for sprinkling
1 tablespoon of cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon of all spice
Pinch nutmeg, optional
1 can Pillsbury refrigerated biscuits

Instructions

Cook apples, 1/4 cup sugar, cinnamon and spices in a pan over low to medium heat with the lid on until apples start to soften and sugar melts. Stir occasionally. Remove from heat when apples are tender but not mushy. Split the biscuits in half horizontally and press an indention into the center of each biscuit; poke fork holes in the indentions. Bake biscuits as directed on package and remove with 2 minutes remaining. Spoon one tablespoon of the apple mixture into each biscuit cup and sprinkle with sugar. Bake for 2-5 minutes longer, until golden brown. Enjoy mini apple tarts for breakfast or dessert.
